Considerations when choosing a great hypnotherapist
In Australia a reputable hypnotherapist will be a member of an institution such as the AHA (Australian Hypnotherapists’Â Association). The AHA has certain standards that must be met before a hypnotherapist can join. Benefits to the client include rebates on certain private health funds.
You may also want to check out if the hypnotherapist has completed a reputable training course. At the moment anyone can label themselves a hypnotherapist and practice. I would suggest that you enquire into where their training was completed and to what level. You are then able to look up the course offered by that institution.
In my opinion, this is one of the most important points to consider when choosing the right hypnotherapist for you. What was your first impression after the initial contact? As hypnotherapists, we are trained to build rapport quickly and it is a vital part of the hypnotherapeutic relationship. If you didn’t feel respected, safe and at ease whilst speaking with a prospective therapist (either by telephone or in the initial consultation) – then that is not the right therapist for you.
